I found the stool test difficult to carry out and I'm not sure I got enough in the tubes, what do I do?

If you're not sure you filled the tubes properly, check if you filled them above the minimum line.

As long as you filled your tubes above the minimum line, they should be fine. You can use separate stools for each tube if you were only able to fill one of the tubes.

The reason there's a minimum line is because we need enough material for every department at the lab. For the microbiome, we need a very small amount of stool, but we need more material for some of the additional inflammation markers.

If it's noticeably under the minimum line, you can add more stool (from the same day) or ask customer services to send you a new kit.
